Subject: To broadcast this version is a bad trick on Paul Grimault.
This version of the movie, finished in 1952 by André Sarrut against the wishes of the authors, has been rejected by Grimault and Prévert. Many years later Grimault recovered the copyrights and the negative. He retrieved as much copies as he can and destroyed them. He cut the Sarrut's bad scenes out, especially at the end of the story, completed the film with Prévert, and named it "Le Roi et L'oiseau". The music by Wojciech Kilar is on the final 1979 version, not on this one (Source : Paul Grimault, "Traits de mémoire", Editions du Seuil, Paris, 1991). This "Curious Adventures of Mr. Wonderbird" should simply be banned.
